Shop Safety

There are a number of shops throughout campus including engineering, woodworking, arts, welding, scene shops, auto/diesel, aviation, and others.  These shops are chocked full of equipment which can be hazardous if used incorrectly.  UAA believes strongly in making sure that the employees and students using this equipment are educated or have proficiency in the operation of said equipment.  The links below are examples of or tools illustrating how this is done.  If you have a way that you are using that you feel is better than what our office has to offer, we would love to hear from you.  To EHS, the most important thing is that the employees and students receive training and work safely.  We are always interested in new and innovative ways to accomplish that.  Please contact our office with questions.
